Are school rivalries big issues in the US? I see all these teen movies and tv shows where there's all this drama over school rivalries, and there's trouble between different cliques - jocks, nerds, cheerleaders, whatever, but I've never seen it first hand. I've always wondered if they're just blowing things out of proportion in the entertainment industry, or if that kind of stuff is actually a big problem in the US.
I can think of "rivalries" my own schools had, but they've always just been light-hearted. When I get together with friends who went to other schools, sometimes we poke fun at each other. I've also never had a problem with cliques. I mean, I've never seen people from the football team chasing "nerds" around and throwing them in lockers. Maybe I'm just naive.
